There has been a lot of chatter among players/bloggers that the paladin class is no longer appealing. So some are leaving the game or trying a different class. I don’t blame them, Blizzard has done a lot that affected the paladin in all spec not just retribution in the recent weeks. (i.e. judgments, AW/DS, etc) However it is funny how people forget the positive things that came out: an instant/HoT heal, more damage in both Ret and Prot, a one minute CC, the ability to mana regen the party, I can keep going.
As for me, I am staying with my paladin. I have invested too much time and effort to let a few nerfs stop me from ditching the holy light. I like the class, I like the mechanics, I like the versatility.
Keep in mind, I will play a DK and level up my warrior but my main will always be my paladin.
